Merry Monday # 273 Red & Turquoise Christmas Card

Welcome friends to the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge!  I know it seems like we just put Christmas away (I guess we really did!), but trust me when I tell you that making these cards now will be a blessing come next November when you are busy busy busy with Christmas activities!
I LOVED this color inspiration that Marcia chose for us and I know poinsettias are not normally cut flowers in a vase, but I so wanted to use these new to me Sunny Studios Petite Poinsettias and the new PTI Flower Power stamp set.  so I combined the two and I love it!  You cannot see all the shine and sparkle on the flowers, but let me tell you, I really winked it up with the Stella!! Tthat cute sentiment is from another PTI set called Winter Village.
A really simple card, almost one layer except I had to add some dimension for a couple of the flowers!!
I hope you will join us this week!  I will see you in the gallery and please go check out what the design team has made to get your creative juices flowing!
Heart Hugs, friends!
